Emily started her ballet training at age 5 when she moved from San Diego, California to Virginia Beach, Virginia. She danced for 13 years at Virginia Beach Ballet Academy under her teacher Ana Maria Martinez. She has attended several prestigious summer intensive programs with professional ballet companies such as New York City Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, and more. When she is not in the studio she is pursuing a degree in Medical Laboratory Science at Old Dominion University.

Emily is excited to pass on her knowledge of ballet to the future generations and join the SSDA Family!
